I had to hide myself in a book
To keep your love away
The pages worn with all of my faults
The cover torn away

I gave my life to the Water God
For an apprenticeship
Answering the mail and his door
For nyads, hyppogryphs, after...

Midwinter Banquet, he shook his head
"Sadly, no,
I can reverse the river's flow,
but I can never send you home."

I had to hide myself in a book
to keep your love away
When you read me, I get to look
Back at my younger days

    General CommentCool! This song's title must be about Sarnia, Ontario, Canada (Where I am from!) He is from Toronto, which is a two hour drive from Sarnia.

    General Commentthe title made me laugh
    i love owens randon refrences
    kindove seems like he misses his childhood
    and sometimes wants to hide there
    love can be complicated so to escape it
    he reads and remebers simplier times.
    maybe im "reading into it" to much
    no pun intended
    haha
    im sorry that was lame.
